Run the Lane for Campers 2016

By April 25, 2016Uncategorized

Run the Lane for Campers is coming soon. It is never too late to start to prepare! On May 29th we will welcome runners, walkers, stroller, wheelchair racers, and all others to Camp Kintail to help raise funds for the Campership Fund. This will be our fifth annual event and we are hoping to raise $10,000 for the Campership Fund.

For the runner who appreciates a challenge there is a 5km multi-terrain route around camp that finishes by running the lane. There is also the 3km option of just running the lane. There will also be a 1km option on the lane for children this year. Regardless of the distance you choose there will be lots of folks cheering you along the way to help keep your going. Water stations are available on the course and every runner in the 5k or 3k race will receive Run the Lane t-shirt. Following the Run, there is a barbeque dinner with lots of time for socializing. The BBQ is by donation.

Camp Kintail’s Campership Fund allows many children to come to camp who might not otherwise be able to on their own. At Run the Lane, many of the runners are Kintail campers and staff alumni who know what a week at camp can mean in a child’s life. There is a sense that we are working together, to help children and families, even though most of the runners will never meet the children they are running for. Run The Lane is a day when Camp is at its best, reaching out and supporting children, families, and the community. We are sharing God’s love in a tangible way with our neighbours.

Come and run with us on Sunday May 29th. Bring a friend or family member and enjoy an afternoon at Kintail while raising money to help send kids to camp.
